Ships and marine technology -- Fire resistance of non-metallic hose assemblies and non-metallic compensators -- Test methods

ISO 15540:2016 specifies a test procedure for determining the fire resistance of non-metallic hose assemblies and non-metallic compensators with nominal diameter of up to 150 mm. It may be used for larger sizes provided proper test bench conditions are obtained. It serves for proving whether, after the period of fire effect on the test bench specified in ISO 15541, hose assemblies and non-metallic compensators continue to be tight, even when subjected to proof pressure. Only water is permitted as a test medium. With a view to ensuring maximum safety for both the operating personnel and the test bench in the event of damage to the hose or non-metallic compensator during the test, the use of combustible test media is excluded.

Foreword

ISO (the International Organization for Standardization) is a worldwide federation of national standards

bodies (ISO member bodies). The work of preparing International Standards is normally carried out

through ISO technical committees. Each member body interested in a subject for which a technical

committee has been established has the right to be represented on that committee. International

organizations, governmental and non-governmental, in liaison with ISO, also take part in the work.

ISO collaborates closely with the International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC) on all matters of

electrotechnical standardization.

The procedures used to develop this document and those intended for its further maintenance are

described in the ISO/IEC Directives, Part 1. In particular the different approval criteria needed for the

different types of ISO documents should be noted. This document was drafted in accordance with the

editorial rules of the ISO/IEC Directives, Part 2 (see www.iso.org/directives).

Attention is drawn to the possibility that some of the elements of this document may be the subject of

patent rights. ISO shall not be held responsible for identifying any or all such patent rights. Details of

any patent rights identified during the development of the document will be in the Introduction and/or

on the ISO list of patent declarations received (see www.iso.org/patents).

Any trade name used in this document is information given for the convenience of users and does not

constitute an endorsement.

For an explanation on the meaning of ISO specific terms and expressions related to conformity assessment,

as well as information about ISO’s adherence to the World Trade Organization (WTO) principles in the

Technical Barriers to Trade (TBT) see the following URL: www.iso.org/iso/foreword.html.

The committee responsible for this document is ISO/TC 8, Ships and marine technology, Subcommittee

SC 3, Piping and machinery.

This second edition cancels and replaces the first edition (ISO 15540:1999), which has been technically

revised. It also incorporates the Technical Corrigendum ISO 15540:1999/Cor 1:1999.

The most significant change in this second edition is the inclusion of non-metallic compensators to the

fire test procedures outlined in this document. The first edition of this document applied primarily to

non-metallic hose assemblies. Because the compensators are used in common piping systems and may

have similar materials to hose assemblies, the applicability of the test procedures was expanded to

include compensators.

ISO 15540:2016(E)
Introduction

The main objective of the test using the test bench described in this document is to determine whether

and for a safety period a non-metallic hose (made of rubber) assembly or non-metallic compensator

(bellow made of rubber) can be exposed to fire without becoming inoperable when subjected to the

design working pressure. Although the attacking fire is simulated such that it corresponds to a fire

occurring in practice, it cannot be assumed that the duration of fire resistance as recorded during that

test will also occur in the event of an actual fire, as the installation conditions, which greatly affect to

the duration of fire resistance, may vary from case to case.

When carried out using the test bench specified in ISO 15541, the test procedure according to this

document is intended to lead to results capable of being reproduced by testing the same size and type.

A specimen test certificate is specified in Annex A.
